il Fiorista is an 85-seat restaurant and boutique shop located between Madison Square Park and New York City's flower district. The concept at its core was to create an energetic space where flowers and herbs would be celebrated, sold and incorporated into a seasonal menu.

Services included design and fabrication of custom polished bronze panels, zinc and ash tables, and selection of new and vintage furnishings and lighting throughout. A large custom interior window with ribbed glass separates the main space from the 20-seat private dining room, a space which adapts to also accommodate il Fiorista's floral workshops.
